I have many titles including but not limited to momma, wife, friend, daughter, sister, cook, house keeper, Physician Assistant. All of my jobs keep me rather busy. In my spare time I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, cooking, gardening, bike riding and keeping up with friends and family.
Sydney is our 6 year old "baby girl". She is full of energy and has a huge appetite for life. She loves being outdoors, especially helping her daddy in the yard, loves reading (or should I say being read to), sings constantly, and is a huge fan of arts/crafts and projects. Syd adores her little brother and is so sweet to him. She is always ready to help momma in the kitchen. Sydney is an absolute joy and will always be our "baby girl".
Griffin Sawyer is our 3 year old "little man". He is so content and always has a smile. He is very attached to his momma but loves daddy and big sis. We cannot remember what life was like before Griffin and we are thankful for him.
We have been working so hard in the yard, truthfully Bill has done most of the labor because I am usually supervising the kids. Bill trimmed all the bushes and the Japanese Maple in this bed and also tore out a ton of vines. The vines are on the fence and they were taking over extending all the way past the line from the large center tree!
I am not sure if we have ever had it cleared out so much and whether we knew there were rocks all the way around the bed. Now when I am back at the raised beds I do not have to worry about what may be lurking in the vines and I can walk on both side of the bed to pick produce.
I added a few new plants, a Nikko blue Hydrangea (5 dollars at lowes) and a Maruc Deep Purple Salvia (4.48 at lowes) . I also planted two ballon plants (? I think this is what they are called) that I bought froma fundraiser and they are coming up towards the back of the bed. I have 1 top hat blueberry in the pot and one in the ground in this bed.
We added all new pineneedles to the yard and dark fine mulch to all the raised beds- I am hoping to keep everything moist this year during the hot season.

Bill trimmed all these bushes and scrubbed (oh yes he is OCD) the gas tank and heat/air pumps
Everything around front was trimmed also and new needles put down, plus Bill washed the front and side of the house where there was a thin green mildew growing on siding
It all looks great and we are thankful to be about done with yard projects, of course there is always more stuff to do.
